Fiorentina – Viola to finally make certain of top-seven placement?

Some might argue that if you lose four of your last five matches, as Fiorentina have, you probably aren’t deserving of a place in Europe. Particularly when three were to teams currently 12th (Udinese), 16th (Sampdoria) and 17th (Salernitana). I’m not so sure those of a Fiorentina persuasion feel the same way though, and the air of disappointment around Florence will be palpable should La Viola not get over the line.

All hope certainly isn’t lost. Beat Juventus at home for the first time since 2017 and La Viola will feature in either the Europa Conference League or Europa League. The latter dependent on Roma coming unstuck at Torino. And while this is evidently a team that has lost its way, underestimating the Florence factor is dangerous. Only the Milan duo boast better home records than Fiorentina at Artemio Franchi (W12 D4 L3).

Key Stat: Fiorentina have won four of their past five home matches in Serie A (L1), while of their 12 victories at the Artemio Franchi this season, only three weren’t ‘to nil’.

Juventus – Bianconeri’s league fate already set in stone?

Saturday cannot come quick enough for some of these players. Some – chiefly Giorgino Chiellini and Paulo Dybala – have already bid farewell to the supporters, but there will be others keen on seeking pastures new in the summer. Juventus will finish fourth irrespective of how they fare in Florence, or what occurs elsewhere, meaning the visitors will be going through the motions as a mediocre, trophyless 2021/22 winds down.

That lack of incentive has been apparent. Having slumped to a shock 2-1 loss in Genoa in their most recent away assignment, a result which halted their four-game winning streak on the road in Serie A, the Bianconeri then followed it up with a limp showing when hosting Lazio on Monday. Scarcely deserving of their 2-2 draw, in which they were only denied all three points after conceding with the last kick of the game.

Key Stat: Juventus both scored and conceded across each of their past six Serie A matches (W3 D2 L1). This was also the case in each of their six previous away league games (W4 D1 L1).

Fiorentina Vs Juventus Betting Advice

While there are visible signs of a capitulation being in full swing among the home contingent, I am still surprised Fiorentina aren’t a few ticks shorter to claim the win they so desperately crave to guarantee qualification for Europe next season. Especially with Juventus having nothing to play for. The Bianconeri will be thrilled to see the back of 2021/22, with their final placement of fourth set in stone.


Fiorentina Vs Juventus – Key Facts:

  • European football beckons for Fiorentina provided they win at home to Juventus in the final round or match whatever result Atalanta achieve at home to Empoli. Juventus are already confirmed as the fourth best team in Italy for 2021/22.
  • Fiorentina last defeated the Bianconeri here in Florence in 2017. Five subsequence meetings in league and cup yielded two draws and three defeats, the latest in March of this year as La Viola lost the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final 1-0.
  • Florence has been a fortress for Vincenzo Italiano’s charges, however. La Viola have picked up more home points this term than all bar AC Milan and Inter Milan, with 9 of 12 home victories being accompanied by clean sheets.


The safe play might be goals, specifically both teams getting in on the action, as Juventus have scored and conceded in six successive matches – including their last six on the road. A word of caution though: Fiorentina possess a 50% success rate (9/18) when it comes to keeping a clean sheet at the Artemio Franchi this term. These include three of the last four, holding Roma scoreless (2-0) last time out in Florence.
